The stunning 200-year-old topiary yew trees adorning the landscaped front garden, and the elegant pale-yellow façade, belies a welcoming interior with old 'farmhouse' warmth and charm, and a plethora of original features.

Stepping through the front door into the entrance hall the history and individuality of this captivating home is immediately evident. The reception hall features a recessed fireplace and cast-iron stove, with a hidden disused staircase secreted behind stripped pine doors. The bright south facing sitting room has a more modern feel with rustic brick hearth and timber mantle. What was once the cow stall is now the dining room with lovely original flag stone flooring, feature fireplace, and space for dining table and other furniture. Across the hall is the beautifully finished, hand-built kitchen with solid grani...


. For anyone with a couple of horses this could be the perfect home. Not only does the property offer a stable block and tack room, but also has adjoining paddocks. The impressive topiary trees in the landscaped front garden are a unique landmark in this rural community. They create a striking vision and frame the path to the front door. There are lawns either side with well-stocked flower beds and borders. The studio cottage is to the left and a long driveway stretches up the right-hand side of the property leading to the large double garage and access to the rear gardens. The rear of the property is a tranquil haven with stunning hillside views. There is a further stone outbuilding, paved patio area, pond and waterfall, a detached conservatory, a vegetable garden, a chicken run, and a secret garden.

Popular with hikers, walkers and ramblers, Cross has two village Inns and is ideally located adjacent to the A38 and a short drive away from the historic town of Axbridge. An important wool-producer in the Middle Ages, Axbridge has always been at the centre of things. Indeed, in earlier times, it was a river port. This was reflected in its early charters allowing it to hold markets, fairs and become a royal borough. It even had its own mint, with coins showing the town's symbol - the Lamb and Flag. The layout of the town has changed little over the centuries, a medieval town expanding on a fortified Saxon burgh and even today visitors can wander the winding streets that remain at the heart of this charming place and soak up hundreds of years of the histories of ordinary lives. Axbridge is well located for...
